More than likely the problem is with the drive wheels at the front. The cogs are most likely worn away - happened to me about 2 or 3 years ago and have the same problem again. Poorly made - cogs are plastic. You'd expect the cogs to be made of metal. Cannot order them from the States as Sears don't ship across the Atlantic. Have to try and get them in the UK.

I have a Craftsman front wheel self propelled mower. The front wheels no longer turn either in self-propel or in manual push mode. What can be done to fix this?


Take a good look at the wheel assembly. Is it rusted on from being left exposed to the elements? Remove the cover for the self propelled mechanism. Is the drive belt intact? Try turning the small pulley.

I have a self propelled lawn mower and the the belt that propells the wheels is loose, do I need to replace it or is there a way to tighten the tension.


Cathy, there is a way to adjust belt tension on some models whether it is by the cable or a slotted bracket where the idler wheel is mounted, depends on make and model. If you have your manual check in it for belt adjustment. Could be stretched belt, stretched cable, worn/oil on pulley, seized tensioner, stretched/broken spring on tensioner,etc.

Self-propelling action on 917.378771 not working


This type of mower uses a gear box driven by a v-belt. First check the v-belt. Is it in place and does it turn when the drive is engaged. You can also check the drive pinions in the wheels. These can wear out or "chew up" the insides of the drive wheels. I doubt it is the transmission, these are tough little units on this mower.

Self propelled lawn mower makes whinning noise


disconnect the spark plug turn the mower on its side and inspect the drive belt on the pulley above the blade (on the crankshaft) it may have a shroud over it. Also there is a small gear case that maybe dry that the belt drives, that goes to the wheels, Also try lifting the drive wheels up off the ground and engage them and see if it still does it. if it stops once lifted it might be the bushings on the axle its self.

Craftsman mower #247.887760 rear drive. rear wheels lock-up when you try to pull mower backwards


The rear wheels are locked to the drive train. To pull or push the mower, you must pull out the release probably at the back of the mower, near the transmission.

Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell


Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

Could be a stretched out/broken belt, a worn out transmission or the drive teeth on the inside of the wheels could be worn out. I would start by looking at that. Remove the drive wheels and check for damaged or missing teeth.
